Question about Dell PowerEdge 2650 Server
I bought a used 2650 off eBay for £70, and when I hook it up to power the green power LED blinks, indicating it's in standby. When I press the power button all the fans come on but no drives spin up, there's no power to the cd drive but the power LED still keeps blinking which implies it's still in the standby state. I'm assuming the server is in some sort of 'ready' state for IPMI poweron but I can't think of any way to get it on. Does anyone know how to force it to power on?
Process of elimination? I first thought it may be a power problem but I could not understand the LED flashing (It still maybe a power problem) If you can leave on charge for 4-5 hours more if you can make sure the light is not flashing (That is turn the laptop off at the power switch) Try turning on after being on charge for as long as you can If that does not work it may be the bios with the wrong setting or the Hard Drive is faulty (The more I think about it I think it may the the last issue) Try the other steps first the turn on holding the DELETE button it (I think that is the button to access the bios ) This with work if the Hard is Good or bad)
